Track 1: Metabolomics
It is the large-scale study of small molecules, commonly known as metabolites, within cells, bio fluids, tissues or organisms. Collectively, these small molecules and their interactions within a biological system are known as the metabolome. Metabolomics represents the molecular phenotype. Four conceptual approaches in metabolomics - target analysis, metabolite profiling, metabolomics, and metabolic fingerprinting. Target analysis includes the determination and quantification of a small set of known metabolites (targets) using one of the specific analytical technique of best performance. On the other hand Metabolite profiling aims at the analysis of a larger set of compounds, both known and unknown with respect to their chemical nature. This approach has been applied for many different biological systems using GC-MS, including plants, microbes, urine, and plasma samples. Metabolomics employs complementary analytical methodologies, for example, LC-MS/MS, GC-MS, and/or NMR, in order to determine and quantify as many metabolites as possible, either identified or unknown compounds. The last approach is metabolic finger-printing.
Track 2: Cancer Metabolomics
Cancer is basically a metabolic disease. Cancer cells are different from normal cells as they show a distinct metabolic phenotype; they consume more glucose than normal cells. This glycolytic phenotype is known as the Warburg effect. The re-discovery of cancer as a metabolic disorder happened in the past ten years, this is due to the increased accessibility of metabolomics, identification of cancer metabolite biomarkers and the discovery of oncometabolites. Metabolomics application in the field of cancer research has led to the progress of metabolism in development of cancer. Cancer is a metabolic disease which changes the digestion system of the cell and encompassing milieu. Metabolomics in field of pharmaceuticals is turning into an inexorably mainstream instrument for life sciences as it is generally quick and also precise procedure this can be connected with either a specific centre or in a worldwide way to uncover new learning about organic frameworks.
Track 3: Diagnostic Biomarkers in Metabolomics
A biomarker is a characteristic that is objectively measured and evaluated as an indicator of normal biologic processes, pathogenic processes, or pharmacologic responses to a therapeutic intervention. A biomarker reveals further information to presently existing clinical and pathological analysis. It facilitates screening and detecting the disease, monitoring the progression of the disease, and predicting the diagnosis and survival after clinical intervention. A biomarker can also be used to evaluate the process of drug development, and, optimally, to improve the efficacy and safety of disease treatment by enabling physicians to tailor treatment for individual patients. These emerging biomarkers will be beneficial and critical in developing new and clinically reliable indicators that will have a high specificity for the diagnosis.
Track 4: Metabolic Modelling and Synthetic Biology
Synthetic Biology aims to create novel biological functions and systems not found in nature by combining biology with engineering. The workflow of the development of novel cell factories with synthetic biology is ideally linear which will be attainable with the quantitative engineering approach, high-quality predictive models, and libraries of well-characterized parts. Different types of metabolic models, mathematical representations of metabolism and its components, enzymes and metabolites, are useful in particular phases of the synthetic biology workflow.
Track 5: Clinical and Precision Medicine Metabolomics
The new field of precision medicine is revolutionizing current medical practice and reshaping future medicine. Precision medicine aspires to put the patient as the central driver of healthcare by broadening biological knowledge and acknowledging the greater diversity of individuals.

These developments are critical to facilitate transition of nutritional sciences from population-based to individual-based criteria for nutritional research, assessment and management. Utilizing metabolomics, scientists can quantitatively dissect non-hereditary variables that are included in post genomic and posttranscriptional change. Foodomics has been recently defined as a new discipline that studies food and nutrition domains through the application of advanced omics technologies in which MS techniques are considered indispensable. Applications of Foodomics include the genomic, transcriptomic, proteomic, and/or metabolomics study of foods for compound profiling, authenticity, and/or biomarker-detection related to food quality or safety; the development of new transgenic foods, food contaminants, and whole toxicity studies; new investigations on food bioactivity, food effects on human health.
Track 8: Lipidomics
Lipids are the important participant in control and regulation of cellular function. The diversity of chemical structure of these lipids is a major challenge for managing high volumes of complex data. The need for bioinformatics is to manage and integrate the experimental data in various aspects, such as, for lipid classification, ontologies, database design, analysis, and visual display. They play diverse roles in human physiology. Lipidomics is a growing field with numerous applications. For analysing different cell types ESI mass spectroscopy is used. Identification of lipid composition and quantification of cellular lipids gives us details about the lipid related pathway which also helps in identification of metabolic pathways and the effected enzymes.
Track 9: Plant and Environmental Metabolomics
Metabolomics is the analysis of low atomic mass metabolites inside a cell, tissue, or bio fluid.

Drug metabolism system is the procedure by which the body separates and changes over pharmaceutical into dynamic concoction substances. Toxicology is a branch of Medical Science that arrangements with the impacts of synthetic compound utilized as a part of the conclusion, treatment, or counteractive action of ailment or other unusual condition on the body. Plant Metabolomics is to characterise at sub atomic level of the total metabolite pool (metabolome) of plants under particular conditions. Metabolomics is used for a better understanding of the correlation between genes and the biochemical composition of a plant tissue in response to its environment can be obtained, and this information can be further used to assess gene function.
Track 10: Transcriptomics and Proteomics
The transcriptomics refers to study of transcriptome. The transcriptome is dynamic, as the levels of RNA transcripts vary during response to certain conditions in the cell or in different developmental stages of the cell. RNA- sequencing or Transcriptome sequencing is a next-generation sequencing (NGS)-based approach for RNA profiling and analysis. Proteomics refers to study of large-scale proteomes. Proteome is a set of proteins produced in an organism or biological environment. One of the Systems Biology’s important objectives is to understand the regulation of cell behavior. And important approaches involve are Measure of transcriptomic profiles through microarrays, RNA-seq etc. and Measure of proteomic profiles through techniques such as gel electrophoresis and mass spectrometry.
Track 11: Systems Biology
Systems biology is the mathematical and computational modelling of biological components, which may be molecules, cells, organisms or entire species. Living systems are complex and dynamic, and their activities are difficult to predict from the properties of individual parts.

Metabolites include a diverse group of low molecular weight structures such as lipids, nucleic acids, vitamins, amino acids, peptides, thiols, organic acids and carbohydrates, which makes analysis a big task. The recent development of analytical platforms, such as GC, HPLC, UPLC, CE coupled to MS and NMR spectroscopy, enables separation, detection, characterization and quantification of these metabolites and other related metabolic pathways. Because of the complexity of the metabolome and diverse properties of the metabolites, single analytical platform cannot be used for detecting all metabolites in a sample. The combined use of modern instrumental analytical approaches has led to the ideal outcomes, and is important for increasing the coverage of metabolites which cannot be achieved by single-analysis techniques. Integrated platforms are frequently being used for providing sensitive and reliable detection of thousands of metabolites in a bio fluid sample. Continuous development of these analytical platforms will accelerate extensive use and integration of metabolomics into systems biology.
